because it seems out of character for washington even then to have betrayed his friend, george william fairfax. and because no contemporary evidence or even gossip supports the idea of a sexual liaison. in the closely knit society of fairfax county, such a scandal would have been hard to can seal. if you doubt that, just think about this. more than 250 years after the fact, we know all about young tom jefferson's improper advances to a friend's wife. now, the sally fairfax episode is revealing mostly of our own need to make washington one of us. conduct that would have gone unnoticed in a thousand other colonial youths is sifted for signs of moral weakness or he's face it, any kind of emotions at all. in young washington. in love is in war, neither youth or experience is a character flaw. far more revealing to me, at least, is the sad, shrewd observation washington made near the end of his life. to one of martha washington's granddaughters on the brink of marriage, he spoke of love as quote, a mighty pretty thing, but like other delicious things it is cloiing. be assured that therein t

not george. he really was very, very thoughtful. he called me and we chatted and i, of course, was really encouraging him because you don't know when you're going to need a d.a. [laughter] >> and in my lifetime, i have always stayed close to every district attorney, every attorney general all over the country. i don't take any chances whatsoever. i remember exactly what jack kennedy said when on "meet the press" and he had named his brother bobby to be his attorney general, u.s. attorney general. and they were upset with mr. kennedy, then the president, and they said, mr. president, nepities many this and nepities many is that. why did you name your brother the attorney general? . he said very simply, because my mother was not a lawyer. [laughter] >> he appointed the best qualified, most loyal, most direct person and gavin newsom did exactly that. and it's interesting, of course, you see gavin held off a whole week so that he could let kamala go so he would be able to fill her job. if he had taken the oath of office on the same day she had taken the office, somebody else would have

george invited all the labor union in our country, the top ones, because they are the people who really fought for solidarity, and we had been to poland a lot and seen the transition, and it just was so touching. he came and he didn't speak english, but he said things with tears running down his face, this little guy standing at the podium, and he kept saying, god bless it, god bless it. and he leaned down and kissed the floor. i think that was the most emotional moment, and then these were great big people, these labor people, and we had a big reception, and while we were standing in the receiving line with this wonderful man, why someone in this party leaned against the dining room table, and it went -- in the middle. and everybody at the white house rushed up and they fixed it up. now, that person was never seen again. the table was gone for like four months, but it was just one of those -- it was an extraordinary day really. and it was so right to have the people who fought for them. that was amazing. >> i have to ask you, in your memoir -- >> are you looking at her? >> i'm a
